Product Description

Product Description

Get ready to slice and dice with precision after using the Chef's Choice Diamond Hone Sharpener. Special magnetic guide and orbiting diamonds produce unequaled blade sharpness. Carefully controlled honing sharpens at 3 precise angles, creating a beveled, strong and longer lasting edge.

This widely praised electric sharpener is so simple to use that knives practically sharpen themselves. It puts a professional-style edge on any kitchen or sporting knife (except serrated knives). Because magnetic guides hold the blade at the proper angle, no guesswork is involved. You simply grip your knife loosely and pull it lightly through the sharpener's slots without pressing down. Key to this knife sharpener's performance are its three stages: presharpening to eliminate the old edge, sharpening to put on a new edge, and honing to polish the blade to a razor edge. These three stages create different bevels, putting a "shoulder" on an edge instead of sharpening with a single bevel. The shoulder strengthens the edge so it lasts longer. For each stage there is a pair of slots, and the sharpening and honing slots use 100 percent diamond abrasives for hardness. The sharpener measures 9 inches long, 4-1/4 inches high, and 3-3/4 inches deep and carries a two-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack

While this product works well for household use and is a good value, there are a few caveats that should be recognized when using it. Although it greatly aids in sharpening, some degree of skill is required to sharpen a blade across its full length. It can take quite a bit of practice to evenly sharpen any curved portion of a blade and near both ends (the near the tip and bolster).
The bolster side of the blade can be difficult or impossible to sharpen for many knives because the case of the sharpener will hit the handle or bolster of the knife before grinding the full edge, leaving a significant portion of the blade unsharpened. For example, this unsharpened area may alter the straight edge of a chefs knife to prevent it from completely cutting through food.
Knives that have a lot of clearance between the blade and the handle such as butcher knives and large chefs knives can be sharpened through the bolster, but keeping a straight edge can remain a challenge because the magnet only maintains the angle of the cut but not vertical movement of the blade.
Because of these problems, some knives may require professional sharpening to reshape the blade after repeated use with this product. However, if properly used according to the instructions by avoiding the unnecessary use of the coarse stages, the need to do professional sharpening will be greatly reduced. The regular use of a honing steel will help to keep the edge sharp without removing much metal.
While this sharpener doesn't produce an edge that's as good as professional sharpening, nor does it eliminate the need for occasional blade reshaping, it works well for people who just want a quick and relatively easy way to sharpen knives for household use with a little practice.
I'd also suggest practicing with an inexpensive knife for a while before working with any finely crafted blades.

I've been using the Chef's Choice for years now. I still use the one I bought in 1992 almost daily. My knives are still in wonderful shape and hold their edges beautifully.
The guesswork has been taken out of knife sharpening with this machine. I'm only so-so with a steel and in any case, a steel can't do the three stage sharpening that the Chef's Choice does. Since it holds the knife at the perfect angle for each step, it makes it easy for the fumble-fingered (like me) to create a perfect edge every time!
I'm buying one for my daughter now, mine is in perfect condition after more than 10 years and I imagine it will be for years to come yet!
I paid over 100 dollars for this very sharpener back then, which was a LOT of money at the time. They've come down so far in price that you haven't any excuse not to get one now!

I've had one of these sharpeners for several years, and I have to echo another reviewer's comments: This tool is fine for average household knives, but if you know the difference between a sharp knife and a SHARP knife, you won't want to use this on your good cutlery.
I was raised by a knife afficianado, and learned knife sharpening the old-fashioned way (with natural and diamond stones, steels and careful technique). The results with this unit don't hold a candle to a knife sharpened the "right" way. As mentioned by others here, the edge left by the Chef's Choice is pretty rough when compared to a razor-sharp edge, although it IS useful for utility knives or re-setting the edge angles on an abused knife.
I've used this tool to good results "fixing" other peoples' knives -- you know the kind -- the ones that have been loose in the gadget drawer for 20 years, used for everything from hacking through frozen meat to tightening screws, and have never been sharpened. That said, I'd never let my Henckels, Wustofs, ot Forschners get close to this thing.
It's a fast way to repair abused knives and get things started towards sharpness, but by no means does it produce what I'd consider a "final" edge.

Most people never experience the pleasure of cutting with a truly sharp knife. Even if they strive to sharpen their kitchen or utility knives, they don't know how to do it properly and their knives never get sharp. Being like "most people" myself, I became frustrated when my repeated attempts to use sharpening steels and stones seemed if anything, counterproductive.

I did some research and realized that my entire technique for sharpening was wrong, wrong, wrong, and if anything, I was making my blades duller through repeated improper sharpening. Now, experienced knife aficionados are already laughing as they read my words, but the whole point here is that 99% of us are NOT well-schooled in this regard. We're the ones for whom these Chef's Choice sharpeners are a godsend.

They key to the (relative) success) of the Chef's Choice method is that it includes a preliminary, presharpening stage which sets up the blade properly for final sharpening. This step takes off a lot of steel so it should only be used either the first time a knife has been sharpened or if the knife has became really dull over time. The final two stages of sharpening refine the edge for final use.

Now, I am willing to accept that compared to expert hand sharpening done by someone truly skilled in this art, an industrial-type electric sharpening may seem crude. To you experts I say, "More power to you!" But the fact is that after a careful (and fast!) sharpening using my Chef's Choice machine my big kitchen knives (and even my larger pocket knives) are certainly sharp enough to cut anything I need to cut, and they are way, WAY sharper than they ever were when I tried to hand-sharpen utilizing my own meager skills.
